Default Echo Glass Switch 3wt

Hi guys,

I am looking at buying this rod and wondering what people think it should be lined with. I know that these rods have a very wide grain window. I was thinking for throwing streamers I would use a Spey Lite Skagit 210. After that I am at a complete loss on what to use for nymphing with it. I was thinking a line with a long belly that I could mend. Maybe even a Switch Chucker in a 2 wt.

I had a Redington Hydrogen 2wt. That was lined with a 225 OPST. I hated the loop to loop connection.

I own the Echo Glass 3wt rod and have a full set of RIO Switch Chucker lines.
However, I have not tested the SC 2wt line at this time.

The SC 2wt should work at 225gr but may be a little heavy for the Glass 3wt rod.
To compensate you may wish to pull back the 25ft head into the tip top about 5ft to lighten up the rod loading.

My preferred lines on the Echo Glass 3wt are the RIO Trout LT in WF6 and WF5, again not extending the total head outside the rod tip.

These lines will spey cast and two handed over head cast nicely.

Regards,
FK
